    I thought it might be fun to talk about everyone's favorite machine and what feet they like. I'll start. I have a Pfaff, which I love. I can't say I have much experience with much else. I have a kenmore that just sits and waits for my daughter to get into it. I got a new foot a couple weeks ago that is Fantastic - it's an open toe applique foot that I can use for regular sewing - I can see exactly where my needle is at all times and I love that! I also got a 1/4 foot with a guide that has changed the quality of my piecing ten-fold.

    I'd love to hear about yours!

    I have a Bernina and a Kenmore. I like my open toe app foot too, and I love my 1/4 and edge stitch feet.

    I have singers and a kenmore. I use my 1/4 inch foot, edge joining, open toed, walking foot, and eventually I will learn to love my free motion/darning foot too! :wink:

    The 1/4 foot with guide is my favorite foot but the single hole throat plate makes the biggest difference in how much better my piecing is. If your machine has one, get it.

    I have a Bernina and wouldn't trade anything for my walking foot!

    Or does the BSR qualify as a foot...if so...then my fav has to be that!

    I have a 1971 Kenmore -- a real workhorse. But my favorite machine for quilting is my Janome! My favorite foot so far is the walking foot -- wow!

    I love my Juki. It's walking foot makes stitch in the ditch easy and the quilting/darning foot and the nine inch throat made free motion quilting easier for me. I love it.

    I have a Kenmore Ergo3 that I LOVE! I also does embroidery which is one of the main reasons I bought it....oh yea, plus I got it for a FANTASTIC price. I do most of my sewing on that. I also have another Kenmore that's probably about 25 years old. Was to go to my oldest, but she showed no interest in sewing unless it was ME doing it. So, I have that one that I use once in a while. I also have my grandmothers Singer (heavy duty, she made ships sails with it). That just sits and holds fabric on top. Love the cabinet it is in. I also have my moms Singer Touch N Sew. That needs a cleaning and overhaul. Don't think it's been used in 20+ years. I also have a New Home that was given to me that needs a part to the bobbin area. Will have that fixed once we get back to the states.
    I favorite foot to use is my 1/4 inch. Just love it! But....I need to get another one since it's starting to not hold the 1/4 inch. I drop it alot. lol
